Boy BFF & Periods

I want to tell my BFF that I got my period but he is a boy and i think he’ll be fine about it but I’m not sure what should I do.

It’s so great you want to tell your BFF about your monthly flow!

Periods are a totally natural part of life, so it’s normal for you to want to share them with those closest to you. If you think he’ll be fine, then go with your gut!

Just start with the basics, like “aww I’m not feeling too good because I just got my period”. Best hold off on some of the more bloody details until he’s gotten used to period talk.

I’m sure you’ll be eating chocolate & watching Netflix together at that time of the month soon!
